How Overvoltage Affects Solenoid Valves Every solenoid valve has a nominal actuation voltage, which is usually based on common power supply voltages such as 12 VDC, 24 VDC, 110 VAC, or 220 VAC. The nominal voltage is typically printed somewhere on the valve body or coil and is the voltage required to actuate (shift) the valve. Applying less than the nominal voltage will result in undervoltage and may result in a slower "on" response time or the valve not actuating at all. Applying more than the nominal voltage will result in overvoltage, which can result in a faster "on" response time of a valve. However, extreme overvoltage could permanently damage the coil. Nominal vs. Rated Voltage
Hit & Hold Circuit Recommendations for Clippard Valves Primary Advantages of a Hit and Hold Circuit: • Lower power consumption • Less heat generation by the coil • Increased cycle life Hit and hold circuits allow valves to be held on for long periods of time at a lower voltage than their rated voltage. The general principle behind a hit and hold circuit is that the valve is energized to full power for a short period of time before dropping the

Clippard EVP Proportional Valves Selection Tips How to select the correct proportional valve for your application.
New Product Development - Stepper-Controlled Proportional Valve NEW PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT BEHIND THE SCENES Published July, 2012, New Equipment Digest Company: Clippard Instrument Laboratory, Inc. Product: STEPPER-CONTROLLED PROPORTIONAL VALVE Brad Thompson, (former) Clippard Design Engineer Why did Clippard decide to develop this product? The Stepper-Controlled Proportional Valve fills a niche for a high-flow proportional flow control valve that has excellent linerarity, hysteresis, and repeatability. How is this valve different from similar products? Have I mentioned that these valves have excellent linearity, hysteresis, and repeatability? Additionally, because of the lead screw design, power is only required to make valve
